Curious Kitchen Restaurant Review, Aztec West Hotel

Nestled inside the upscale Aztec West Hotel, the Curious Kitchen is a hidden gem of a spot for a Sunday lunch just outside of Bristol. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly and shown to our table in the inviting, light-filled dining space with a high-vaulted ceiling. There was a buzzy atmosphere, with families and couples […]

Nestled in the charming village of Chew Magna, this family-run pub with four beautiful bedrooms exudes a welcoming vibe, making it a true hidden gem for visitors. Situated […]

Salkaara Street Review

Arriving at Salkaara Street on a Friday evening, we were charmed by the riot of colour, aroma, and sound from the moment we crossed the threshold. Poppy Indian music plays in the background and murals and Bollywood movie posters cover the walls. The floor is painted like a street, giving a nod to the menu’s […]

The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer Review

The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer has become a Bristol institution over the years. Its position on King Street puts it at the heart of the city’s pub scene, but The Volley stands out for its incredible offering of carefully selected – and ever-changing – craft beer and top-notch food. It’s a pub with the kind […]

The Clifton Sausage

A true Bristolian institution, The Clifton Sausage has been a mainstay of the Bristol food scene since it first opened its doors in the heart of Clifton Village in 2002. We visited in a recent rainstorm, eagerly stepping into the warm and cosy space. We passed through the well-stocked bar – a great spot for […]

Salkaara Restaurant Review

Salkaara was bustling when we visited on a Thursday evening, filled with tables of couples, friends and families enjoying exquisite Keralan cuisine. The restaurant opened its doors in Henleaze, just off Westbury on Trym and close to the Downs, following the success of the first restaurant in Cardiff – one meal here, and it’s easy […]

Sunday Lunch at The Eldon House

The Eldon House is the kind of local everyone wants as their own. It’s in the heart of Clifton, on the steeply sloping Lower Clifton Hill and overlooking Queen Elizabeth’s Hospital. As soon as we stepped inside – to a wonderfully warm welcome – we saw why this is such a beloved pub. It’s a […]

Alfresco, Cleeve Review

Alfresco makes the most of its rural position with a sparkling glass covered terrace at the front where you can dine in an outside-but-inside scenario even if the weather isn’t the best. There were sheep bleating happily in a nearby field as we strolled in, but we knew that were telling fibs about spring bursting […]

Dao Chao Chinese Restaurant, Broad Quay, Bristol Review

Dau Chao restaurant is the very new kid on the block at Broad Quay having been open for only a month or so. The décor is comfortable but casual with floor to ceiling windows giving a spectacular view across the city centre ideal for people-watching and seeing the world go about its business. What could […]
